Thanks for the review Tinks3! We are also open for lunch 7 days a week and prices start from just £6.95 - always good to know if you're after something a little different for a bite to eat.

Staff are authentic and very polite. Food is lovely and very chillie hot! I love hot food so it wasn't a problem. They did say if we didn't want it so hot they would adjust it.

Been several times over the past 18 months. Food and service excellent. Very tasty. Recommended. Smallish but that helps with the atmosphere. Need to book though to avoid disappointment.
